Tommy Sheppard publicly stated during a press conference on Monday that the Washington Wizards have no plans to trade John Wall.

Wall's preference for a trade from the Wizards was reported at the opening of free agency on Friday by Shams Charania.

"There's no plans to trade John," said Sheppard. "Obviously, it's unfortunate at this time of year... I was with John this morning. I watched him work out."

Wall's position is believed to be in response to reported discussions between the Wizards and Houston Rockets centered on a trade for Russell Westbrook. 

Sheppard also said that Wall has not requested a trade.
